It’s been way too long since I’ve done an episode of Open Source Sex — so here’s #70! It’s a story so steamy I actually get quite flustered while I’m reading it. A sample from the wonderful explicit erotica collection “Girls On Top“, the story is called “A Woman In His Room” and it’s by the fabulous, prolific British erotica author Saskia Walker. The story centers on a young woman who erotically fixates on a very masculine male border her father let rent the bedroom next to hers, and what happens when he catches her pushing her interest too far. The piece is very layered, and I love the focus on her articulating her very non-romantic sexual urges. I think many of us can relate. It will still engage you emotionally, however — this is a Walker story after all.

Josh Lerner of Harvard Business School talks to Viv Davies about his book, co-authored with Mark Schankerman, ‘The Comingled Code: Open Source and Economic Development’. Lerner discusses the economic impact of open source software and its relationship with innovation and growth. Drawing from a new database, Lerner describes how open source and proprietary software interact and suggests how government policy should ensure that open source competes effectively with proprietary software. The interview was recorded by telephone on 14 February 2011.
What do the Adobe Flex and ActionScript compilers; the award-winning 3D Flash library, Papervision3D; the native data format for Flash, SWX; and the excellent Flash streaming and interactive server, Red5 have in common? They’re all open source. And they’re all introduced in this book by the project leads themselves.Contrary to its popular perception as a closed platform, the Flash Platform has an active and thriving grassroots open source community and a plethora of open source projects. In this session, Aral Balkan, founder of OSFlash.org and creator of SWX, will give you an overview of what’s possible with open source Flash with examples from the book.
